Ubuntu to change its default search engine to Yahoo!?Can the same be done for Fedora?


Can Fedora change its default search engine to Yahoo! just like Ubuntu is about to change its default search engine from Google to Yahoo!? I'd love that.

I don't like Google. Too many unnecessary repetitive indexing of the same or slightly changed titles to links for the same sites. I've always liked Yahoo! from the start.

Thanks.

And if you're talking about Firefox, there are several different search engines to choose from - just click the google icon/dropdown and select one.
